      199912 Form 5599, Item 45 = "1" (NOL year)
      199712 Form 5599, Item 44 = leave blank

      199712 Form 5599, Item 12 = amount of tax assessed on the $10,000 adjustment

      199712 Form 5599, Item 44 = $50,000 (captures the carry forward amount disallowed)
      199712 Form 5599, Item 45 = "1" (NOL year)
      199412 Form 5599, Item 44 = leave blank
      199412,199512,199612 Form 5599, ltem 45 = "2" (Related years)
      199412, 199512,199612 Form 5599, Item 12 = amount of tax assessed on the $20,000, $30,000 and $40,000 adjustments

    4. You made a $140,000 adjustment to the 199612 NOL. You picked-up the carry back years and carry forward years and applied $20,000 to 199312, $30,000 to 199412, $40,000 to 199512 and $50,000 to 199712.

      199612 Form 5599, Item 44 = leave blank
      199612 Form 5599, Item 45 = "1" (NOL year)
      199312, 199412, 199512,199712 Form 5599, Item 44 = leave blank
      199312,199412,199512, 199712 Form 5599, Item 45 = "2"
      (Related years)
      199312,199412, 199512, 199712 Form 5599, Item 12 = amount of tax assessed on the $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 and $50,000 adjustments.

  5. Offset Examples:

    1. The 199712 return showed taxable income of $75,000 (taxable income before NOLD = $125,000, NOLD = $200,000). You made adjustments to 199712 changing taxable income before NOLD to $175,000. Your $50,000 adjustment will be totally offset by the NOLD carry over of $200,000. The 199812 return has not be filed, therefore cannot be picked-up to adjust the carry over. The 199612 return was examined but no changed.

      199712 Form 5599, Item 44 = $50,000 (Amount of adjustment offset by carry over)
      199712 Form 5599, Item 45 = " 3" (Offset year)
      199612 Form 5599, Item 44 = leave blank
      199612 Form 5599, Item 45 = "2" (Related years)

    2. The 199712 return showed taxable income of $75,000 (taxable income before NOLD = $25,000, NOLD = $50,000). You made a $100,000 adjustment to 199712 changing taxable income before NOLD to $75,000 that is partially offset by the $50,000 carry over from 199612. The 199812 cannot be adjusted since it has not been filed.

      199712 Form 5599, Item 44 = $25,000 (NOL C/F amount disallowed) + $50,000 (offset)
      199712 Form 5599, Item 45 = " 1" (Both "1" and "3" apply, but "1" always takes precedence).
      199712 Form 5599, Item 12 = amount of tax assessed on the $25,000 adjustment.

    3. The 199612 return showed taxable income of $75,000 (taxable income before NOLD = $125,000, NOLD from 199512 NOL carry over = $200,000). You made a $50,000 adjustment to 199612 changing taxable income before NOLD to $175,000. Your $50,000 adjustment will be totally offset by the 199512 NOL carry over disallowed. Since the 199712 return was adjusted, no entries in the NOL fields are warranted unless the 199512 NOL was examined and the 199612 and 199712 were related to the NOL. Then Item 45 would be "2."

      Note:

      FOR EO ONLY Work papers stay face up.

    8. Correspondence in date order with most current date on top.

The signature and date must be entered in the bottom margin of the form. When the account is received in the Closing Function, the AIMS Coordinator must also approve closing AIMS accounts using DC 33, prior to terminal input.

  2. Form 10904, Request for Record Deletion from AIMS/ERCS, may also be used to close an account with a DC 33.

* Use an original return blocking series for electronically filed returns, and cases in which the TC 150 is an SFR/Dummy TC 150. The original return blocking series is necessary since there is not a paper original return for either of these type cases. If the copy blocking series is used, a CP notice will be generated instructing Files to pull the original return and associate it with the examined closing which is inapplicable.
@ Refer to Documents 6379, 6476 and 11308 for a list of non-examined disposal codes.
& The copy blocking series will generate a CP notice instructing Files to pull the original return and associate it with the examined copy.
+ This blocking series will not generate a refile DLN therefore the original return will remain filed under the DLN that contains the "X."
$ This blocking series will generate a refile DLN but will NOT generate a CP notice to pull original return and associate it with the examined copy. In most cases, the original return will remain filed under the TC 150 DLN.
Note: (1) Non-examined closings with returns (DC’s other than 01-19, 34 or 50–55(EO & GE) ) are numbered in the 650–699 series. Non-examined closing without returns, i.e., DC’s 29 , 33 or 99 will be numbered in the 1NN series (it is not necessary to send closings without returns to Accounting for NMF indexing.)
  (2) For Forms 5570, Appeals Short Closings, assign a block number in the 700-799 series manually.
  (3) Long closings to Appeals will be numbered in the 100-199 blocking series.
  (4) NMFT = * - there is no specific MFT Code relating to these form numbers.

See Exhibit 4.5.2–1 for DOC Code 47 Blocking Series.

1 Use Priority Code 1 to allow TC 30X to post when an amended or duplicate return freeze condition exists at MF. Be sure the adjustment will not create a duplicate refund or assessment. Terminals will not accept closings when an amended or duplicate return freeze exists unless Priority Code 1 is present. The amended return should be in the case file.
2 Use Priority Code 2 to override the unpostable condition that normally occurs when the settlement amount does not match the tax liability amount. (For examination documents blocked in the 900–999 series.)
3 Use Priority Code 3 to bypass an unpostable condition caused by an amended return freeze and settlement amount. (Used when both PC 1 and PC 2 are required to post the examination adjustment.)
4 Use Priority Code 4 to allow an examination partial assessment to post when an amended return freeze exists at MF. (For examination documents blocked in the 1XX, 10X, or 18X series.
5 Causes IMF or BMF MCC posting process to generate and post assessments (or abatements) of accrued unrestricted FTP penalty and/or interest. May be used with TC 290/300 for any amount and in combination with other Transaction Codes.
8 Use Priority Code 8 to bypass the unpostable conditions that occur when the adjustment is within $10 of a previously posted adjustment (UPC 158 or 328.) Also, use PC 8 if there is a TC 295 on the module that is being recaptured with a TC 300.
  Use Priority Code 8 when the adjustment contains Credit Reference Number 764 (Earned Income Credit) and there is a TC 290 in the module (UPC 180).
  Use Priority Code 8 when the adjustment contains Credit Reference Number 806 or 807 and no TC 17X, when the module contains a significant TC 170/171 (UPC 158). Use Priority Code 1 if both PC 1 and PC 8 are required to adjust an account.
* The computer will automatically compute the estimated tax if the only TC 17X on the module is a TC 176/177. Priority Code 8 is not required.
9 Use if an agreement date is entered and push code 036 is on the module. This prevents the agreement date from going to Master File; therefore interest will be computed correctly. Use when inputting a return or adjustment, if the module contains an SFR to compute FTP from the return due date.
* Priority Code 9 is used with TC 291 blocked 200–299 to bypass UPC 150 for IMF 350 for BMF.

Exhibit 4.5.2-5 
Computation of Statute Dates

Defaulted 90-Day Letters

If the taxpayer does not petition the Tax Court and does not agree to the deficiency by signing a waiver, the case is closed as unagreed. The deficiency can then be assessed because the taxpayer has defaulted (i.e., has not responded to the Notice of Deficiency, 90 or 150-Day Letter.) The statute will be extended for the 90/150-days the case was suspended, plus 60-days allowed by law to process the assessment.

Example:

Follow the steps in the order indicated for Defaulted 90–Day Letters:

Description   Julian Date   Calendar Date
Original statute date 2 105 1 4/15 (April 15)
Plus 90 (150) days for 90-Day Letter 3 +90 (150)

Plus 60 days to assess 4 +60 5 9/12 (September 12)
Equals extended ASED   255   11/11 November 11

Julian date of original statute (April 15) 5 +105    
Julian date of correct statute date   230 6 8/18 (August 18)

Defaulted 90-Day Letter Issued on a Case which contains a Form 872-A

A notice of deficiency terminates Form 872-A. If the notice defaults, the statute date is extended for the 90 (150) days the case was suspended plus 60-days to process the assessment.
